Italy’s Prime Minister Draghi resigns: the end of the government in Rome

Draghi has offered his resignation. New elections are expected in October.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi has tendered his resignation, according to the Office of the President. President Sergio Mattarella said he had asked Draghi to lead an interim government. Draghi won a vote of confidence in Parliament on Wednesday. However, his three most important coalition partners, on whose further cooperation Draghi had insisted, stayed away from the vote.

This is the end of the governing coalition in Rome. New elections are expected in October.
